Diamond white is actually not white white… it’s supposed to be more ivory than white.  So you want to see light ivory dresses that aren’t quite true ivory, right?

Diamond white is still white. It may not be a bright white, but more so a softer white but its def not ivory.

I put my dress side by side with one that was ivory, and the ivory really looked yellow compared to the diamond white…

Mine wasn’t 100% white, as it’s nearly impossible to dye silk that pure bright white like polyester. But it was white enough that even the whitest accessories, including pearls, looked creamy against it. It did make buying accessories difficult!

Compare it with my bouquet: Those were the whitest peonies my florist could find. She thought they were pure white! I really didn’t want a yellowish bouquet with a white dress, but meh, I loved my bouquet anyway.

I don’t think ivory is more flattering on everyone. Ivory is often a warm-toned colour, but lots of people suit cool tones much better. But that really depends on the exact shade of ivory, which is different for every brand and fabric type.

Yes, although my dress is ivory, I hate this dogma that no-one can wear white, and that you should stay away from it! It’s totally untrue!

I’ve got white skin and black hair, and cream is the least flattering colour on me EVER, while white always looks great (like black, or red, it’s a strong colour in it’s own right, so if strong colours suit you, and pastels wash you out, go for white, IMO).

I only chose ivory because the veil I wanted only came in ivory, and I was satisfied that it wasn’t washing me out too much. Champagne makes me look like death!

My dress is diamond white (I was told it was an off-white, inbetween white and ivory).

I have a white dress! After ordering it, I was debating if I should have ordered ivory, but after getting more of a tan, I am happy with how the white looks on me:-)
